This ranges from HND/C level, degree students through to post-graduate students (MBA and MSc). My teaching expertise covers Organisational Behaviour and Organisational Theory, and Human Resource Mangement - in particular, Performance Management,and Performance and Reward Management (Level 7)l Leadership and Organisations as well as Research Methods.
